Highest Total Earnings of Any Active NFL Player: Eli Manning

No active NFL player has more career earnings than Eli Manning.

The New York Giants quarterback checks in with $219,280,004 in earnings to date.

Tom Brady, the man Eli bested to win his two Super Bowl rings, ranks second with $197,166,804.

Manning was drafted No. 1 overall in 2004 by the San Diego Chargers but was traded to the Giants, who had selected NC State QB Philip Rivers with the fourth overall pick.

Aside from rookie season when played in only nine games (seven starts), Manning has started every game but one for the Giants over the past 13 seasons.

Manning has played in four Pro Bowls (2008, 2011, 2012, 2015.)

Eli is the brother of former All-Pro QB Peyton Manning, and the son of legendary New Orleans Saints QB Archie Manning.

Manning finished just shy of becoming the sixth player to throw for over 5,000 yards in an NFL season when he threw for 4,933 yards in 2011.

It's tradition for NFL quarterbacks to buy their offensive linemen gifts each year, and Eli has never been one to skimp. Last season, he gave each of his hog mollies a designer duffle bag worth $1,800 each.
